Legoland Florida Resort is looking to make their park more autism-friendly for our community! Recently Legoland Florida partnered with Autism Speaks to help focus on new initiatives that will make the park more accommodating to everyone who has special needs.

Karen Bacharach, senior director of Autism Speaks, told The Orlando Sentinel, “Autism Speaks applauds the efforts of Legoland Florida Resort to provide special accommodations so that guests on the autism spectrum can maximize their park experience.”
Legoland Florida will now include “quiet rooms” for special need families and park employees will receive a bi-annual training with Autism Speaks staff and volunteers to help educate their new hires on autism. Their disabilities guide discusses more about what they do for the autism community here.
